(d). How credible do you think the paper is?
The article has higher credibility since the content of the article logically well organized, the ISSN number, the publisher and the details of the author available on the article including the list of references.
(e). Did you agree, or not, with what they wrote in their conclusion? Why?
I agree with their conclusion. The statements in conclusion are well matched with the content of the article.
(f). Briefly describe two things that you learnt from the paper.
The basic functions of an UAV and features of a AI control system.
(f). In no more than 250 of your own words (i.e. a paraphrase), describe what the paper is about – you could start with “This paper describes……….”
The aim of the paper is to find out possible ways to use AI control systems in UAV and other mobile devices.
The relative higher rate of accidents in UAVs compared to manned air crafts implies the inaccuracy of remote controls, and emphasizes the necessity of autonomous AI control system.
According to the author AI control system for UAVs should be developed by specialists on control and application of UAVs after mastering AI methods rather than AI specialists with master knowledge of UAVs control methods.
Further author has listed the following key areas to be considered when developing the AI control system,
- Minimize the damage to UAV
- Minimize the use of resources such as fuel and time
- Minimize the possibility of disturbance of finishing the mission in success
- Take all possible measures to hide the information
- The improvement of adjustments according to the situation and environment
The constraint reasoning, scheduling, planning and control methods for physical dynamic systems in real time will be developed to enhance the accuracy of the UAV control. In addition to that the AI system can examine the situation and take the decision faster than the human being, therefore AI system is well ahead of human being.
Upper level, Middle level, Lower level and lowermost level are identified as the methods of implementing the AI control system.
